That plane could be any where by now even more than 4 hours away. It could of landed some where and refueled we need to be checking all these avenues and not assume it has crashed.
There could be a big reason for conflicting reports off officials too for the reason to cause confusion to the hi jackers.

Well the first part is 100% correct The last part? Well I don't believe they are that incompetent Someone else pointed out what should be obvious to us all - that part of the world is under a microscope 24/7. They can see a new pimple develop on a terrorist/enemy in real time. So for them to play this Keystone cop routine, is really ridiculous.
had to give you a star for that. Now they definitively know the direction? The India Ocean thing is the simple answer for them to dispose of the issue for now. It's that simple.
How many times are these bufoons going to change the story.
This has gone from intresting to boring in a short period of time.

Bilk, even a broken clock's right TWICE a day...
If you throw enough rocks at a window you'll hit it....
Its like playing batteships, they're firing at coordinates one at a time hoping they'll hit it because really they havn't got a damn clue where it is...edit on AM5Fri20141972 by andy1972 because: (no reason given)
The passengers include at least two persons who were traveling with fake documentation, supposedly asylum seekers headed for pastures new, and twenty or so technical specialists who may have been contracted to the US government research and development groups, aiming to create some sort of cloaking system for the military.

Reading between the lines, SOMETHING is going on, and that is all one can say for sure. What, how, and who is responsible however, remain a mystery, and there is nothing quite as intriguing as a mystery!
Chances are negotiations with the hijackers have been going on for days...
The secrecy is all about governments not negotiating with terrorists...
how long does an runway has to be just for landing an 777 ....ignore an take off distance...
The Boeing 777-300, at MTOW (Maximum Takeoff Weight), needs a runway that is 11,200 ft long; at MLW (Maximum Landing Weight), needs a runway that is 8,100 ft long.

That is rather my point. Where is all this junk data coming from, and who is spreading it? What is the purpose of applying significant disinformation efforts to this matter? Who stands to benefit from this confusion, and why? I am not offering a theory at this point, because although there is an awful lot of data available, much of it is unreliable. What I am saying is, that this case is interesting because of the sheer amount of disinformation being spread about it.
For many, it will only deepen their confusion. However, the one thing that such efforts prove, to me at least, is that something of great significance either happened, or is happening, with that plane, and it's passenger and crew compliment, or in the area which is being searched.
I looked up the Andaman islands in wikipedia and then clicked on a link to some Burmese owned islands in that chain called the Coco Islands. Looking at the page......there's a Chinese Signals Intelligence base there. Coincidence or not ?
and an interesting article about the base here in a burmese news site.
interesting addition to the plot I think.edit on 14-3-2014 by pot8er because: Bad grammar
